Dr. Wang's research is in the area of experimental atomic, molecular, and optical physics, in particular exploring the quantum behavior of the building blocks of matter at nano-Kelvin temperatures. He completed his dissertation work at the MIT-Harvard Center for Ultracold Atoms under the supervision of Nobel laureate Prof. Wolfgang Ketterle. Prior to joining the Gordon faculty, Dr. Wang was responsible for scientific engagement at M Squared Lasers, a Scottish manufacturer of specialized laser systems for top research institutions worldwide.
Dr. Wang spent parts of his childhood in the UK and China but primarily grew up in Toronto, Canada. He and his wife met at Hope Fellowship Church in Cambridge, where they remain active members. Outside the classroom, he can often be found running in the Gordon Woods.
